Hollywood has ruined our confidence in humanity. We can’t watch anyone doing anything cool anymore without quipping, “yeah, but it’s probably all CGI.” When in doubt, we assume people are no longer capable of anything, no one has special skills and anything seen on screen is a product of millions of dollars in R&D and teams of computer geeks huddled over their keyboards.
This video changes all those misconceptions and restores our confidence in true, living, breathing skill. Though every frame in this “Dream Ride” video looks lab-manufactured, it was shot on location. In Australia’s Cairns forest. With real people doing very real, very breathtaking things.
Humans: 1, Computers: 0.
